Israeli soldiers attack Friday's peaceful rallies against wall and settlement


RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Dozens of Palestinians and foreign peace activists were wounded on Friday when they were attacked by Israeli soldiers during weekly anti-wall marches in several West Bank villages and towns.

In Bil'in village west of Ramallah, dozens of Palestinians were reportedly injured when Israeli soldiers fired rubber bullets, and stun and tear gas grenades at their weekly march.

The Bil'in committee against Israel's segregation wall and settlement said the march of this week was dedicated to the support of the reconciliation meeting between Hamas and Fatah leaders in Cairo.

In another incident, the Israeli occupation forces violently attacked the weekly march organized by Kafr Kaddum villagers near Qalqiliya. Many participants suffered from tear gas suffocation.

The villagers along with peace activists protested Israel's settlement expansion activities and demanded the opening of the village's main street that has been closed for years.
